Advion, Inc. a leading life sciences Systems and Consumables developer, has appointed Universal Analytical and Testing Instruments, Ltd. (UATIL) as the exclusive distributor for the expression, a Compact Mass Spectrometer (CMS) approximately half the size, and half the price, of existing single quadrupole mass spectrometers on the market. The newly-released and shipment-ready CMS was introduced to the Chinese market this past week with joint visits to leading CROs and academic and government research sites - with great interest.

The expression CMS is designed for the discovery research and process development synthetic organic chemistry market. Compact enough to operate in fume hoods and space-restricted laboratories, chemists now have direct access to identify, monitor and confirm compounds rapidly as they are created in the reactor. Moreover, the personal single quadrupole mass spectrometer allows for rapid compound confirmation in normal phase chromatography fractions.

Traditionally, chemists initiate a multi-hour reaction and periodically withdraw samples for analysis in an open access mass spectrometry lab. The remote analysis can take hours, decreasing the usefulness of the information and building workflow inefficiencies. Additionally, large numbers of normal phase purification fractions are generated and add to the central lab burden, further slowing vital feedback. Available systems are too complex, costly, large and lacked design elements to be used in a hood next to the reaction. The expression CMS is easy to use with an intuitive software package. The combination of a small footprint (< 11 inches wide) and critical design features which permit operation within a fume hood, or next to existing bench instrumentation, conserve valuable laboratory space.

"This group of chemists has been largely underserved and Advion has a wealth of experience in mass spectrometry applications in small molecule, natural product and peptide chemistry," says David B. Patteson, Advion's CEO. "Universal is the best partner for this product in China. They have a large geographic footprint in the country, sales/support offices in all of the major cities, and a deep set of relationships with all our intended customers."

Advion will continue to utilize ASPEC Technologies for the representation of its TriVersa NanoMate ion source products sold into a large range of applications including proteomics, lipidomics and metabolomics as they are the ideal partner for those solutions.
